The Lawrence Homestead was the site of the 1707 kidnapping of 3 Tarbell children, one girl and two boys, by Native Americans. The girl was given to a French family in Montreal and eventually became a nun; the boys became prominent members of their tribe and refused to return to their Groton home, years later, when given the chance.
